cafe del rio journal

this comp book journal page was done in honor of one of our favorite places to eat -- cafe del rio. since this restaurant opened in the mid-90s, we have spent many many hours of fun family enjoyment around the tables here -- dipping chips in salsa and cheese dip and sharing time together and talking about our lives and our events. everyone special in our lives has been to cafe del rio w/ us, too.

the decor is done as a mexican cantina, w/ buildings and designs painted on the walls. the colors are stereotypically bright, and that's what reminded me of cafe del rio when i opened up to this bright orange page and wondered what to do here. plus, a couple trips to "chips and cheese" with "the girls" (summer, raven and riahna) gave me plenty of inspiration and reminders.

the page background is painted w/ cheap acrylic paints, drawings in prang colored pencils, and writing w/ red gel pen. the page was then sprayed w/ matte sealant to prevent smudging.

Raven saw the archway and said "Mom, is that chips and cheese? Why did Memaw draw chips and cheese? I think maybe she's prolly hungry!"
